I simple popped open the can (a can of 8 large biscuits, generic brand:) and then used a 1" circle cutter to make holes in the middle of each of them. Then I added them to about 1/2" of hot oil in a large skillet.
They fried about 30-45 seconds on each side, or until they were browned nicely. The holes browned more quickly than the donuts.
I laid them on paper towels to soak up some of the oil, then I rolled each one in powdered sugar. I hear cinnamon-sugar is good, too. We may try that next time. We are big fans of the powdered sugar though (makes you almost think your eating beignets!).
These didn't last any time at all around here. And they were absolutely divine with my hazelnut coffee! You've gotta try them~they're too easy not to make them!
